Preschool

Parent Connect | August 20, 2017

Preschoolers ages four and five:  Spending time with this phase may seem like a visit to your therapist: “Why?” “Why?” “Why?” but when a four-year-old asks why, they aren’t looking for reason or purpose. What they are really asking is “How?” So when they ask you “why ” the second and third time, remember they aren’t doubting you. They’re just looking for more of the knowledge they know you must have as an adult person.  It’s just a phase, don’t miss it.  – The ReThink Group

See you at church!


 

The Story

Animals  Genesis 1:20-25

This weekend is every preschooler’s favorite one. It’s time to talk about animals. They will have an awesome time mooing and quacking and oinking all while they learn about the amazing animals God made. The story focus this week is God made the animals, and they are wonderful. God made each and every animal unique and gave it certain characteristics to help it live. Giraffes have longs necks so they can eat the leaves in the trees. Elephants have amazing noses to help them do a variety of things.

Grab your child’s favorite children’s Bible, read through the creation story and help your preschoolers see the wonder of God’s creation at home as you share about the amazing animals He made.
